The Untold Story

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
- Maya Angelou

Because today is May 1, Labor Day here in the Philippines, and more than three years after I gave birth, please allow me to tell THE STORY through this scrapbook of how our son Jared Nicolas came to be (minus the PG details, wink!).

Finally, one album down.

Here's a preview of some of the pages.

Six months after the wedding, our boy was conceived.

It wasn't an easy pregnancy and it was one filled with small sacrifices and constant fear that he will be out early.

But God and out little boy heard my prayers and...

and on that fateful day in April, just when he turned exactly 37 weeks, our boy came to this world. Full-term and healthy!

At the nursery, he was always trying to open his eyes and the look he gave his daddy on the other side of that glass was priceless.

The days that followed were about trying to make the thought that we are now parents sink in and trying hard to frantically learn what we needed to learn: holding the baby, giving him a bath and feeding him right. I was in and out of the nursery to breastfeed the hungry boy. Never mind the CS operation on me.

Four days after, he took him this precious bundle of joy.
